slide3

Although all towns and cities are different, most have grown and developed in the same way.

Believe it or not there is a PATTERN to it all !

slide4

We can show this pattern by using a MODEL – a simplified picture.

This is an URBAN MODEL to show the different land use within a town or city.

Each different colour sector represents a different type of land use.

slide6

Urban pattern grown model Six land use settlements

slide7

On your worksheet you have a copy of the Urban Model which looks like this …..

… but the key has not been coloured in to show the different types of land use.

As we go through the slides you will find out what the main type of land use is in each sector.

Using a PENCIL shade in the key so that it matches up with your copy of the model.

Use the rest of the space in the table to note down some of the things you might find in each of these areas

slide9

THE CBD

The Central Business District

This is usually the original site of the settlement.

  • Large Shops
  • Offices
  • Restaurants
  • Cafes
  • Cinemas
  • Theatres
  • Museums

It is centrally located because the rest of the settlement has grown around it.

slide10

INNER CITY

19th Century Housing

  • Terraced houses for the factory workers.
  • Some now replaced by high-rise flats.
  • Small Corner shops

Located just outside the CBD

Houses built near to the factories so that the workers could get to work easily.

slide11

INNER SUBURBS

Housing 1920 - 1950

  • Larger houses usually with gardens
  • Some Parks
  • Some rows of shops

Newer houses built for the growing population.

The land is cheaper the further away from the CBD you go, so houses were built with gardens.

slide12

OUTER SUBURBS

Modern Housing

  • New houses and housing estates
  • New shopping centres
  • Parks and other open areas

The land around the edge of a settlement is much cheaper and there is enough space to build large housing estates.

slide13

New Industrial Area

Industrial estates and business parks built since 1970, close to main roads

They are located close to main roads so that there is easy access for goods and employees

slide14

Old Industrial Areas

  • Along a river, canal or railway
  • Many old factories now closed
  • Area may look run down

They are located near to rivers, canals and railways because they needed to transport goods in and out of the city.

slide15

Look out for different land use as you travel around STOCKPORT or MANCHESTER.

See if you can spot the pattern !
